    remember: they do have allies in their respective sports.  

    I'm still in love with Chris Kluwe for his awesomeness in this area.

    Good people will stand  up for them.  The rest?  pfffft.  We don't need you.

    We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.

      Ayanbadejo was cut. Chris Kluwe, who is indeed awesome, and Scott Fujita, quieter but every bit as awesome, have not been cut and Kluwe will be even more outspoken now, if that's even possible. The NHL, I think is HOPING one of their players comes out, because they've been so good on our issues of late.

      And yes. The NBA and MLB? pfffft indeed.
